Ingredients

  • 1 x 200g tin Taste the Difference Albacore tuna in olive oil
  • 1 aubergine
  • 1 x 225g pack cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • 1 x 250g pouch Merchant Gourmet ready-to-eat freekeh

  • ¼ red onion, finely sliced
  • ½ x 28g pack basil, leaves only, torn
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar

  3. Add the aubergine and rocket to the bowl, pour over half the dressing and toss together. Spoon onto 2 plates, flake the tuna on top and drizzle with the remaining dressing.
